I have such fond memories of Uncle Chalk. He was patient and generous, slow to anger, and very much like my father. No wonder they were such good friends. I am so sorry I couldn't be in Kentucky for his memorial service. love, Cheri

Gramps was the best! He taught everyone about family and God. He gave us all laughter and love. I was proud to be his great grandson and I will miss him. He not only served his country well but also a very large family. I love you Gramps!!!

I was so fortunate to have the best grandfather in the world! He saved me from MANY a spanking as a child. If anyone even mentioned the word, he would snatch me up into his lap, sit in the recliner and hold me tight. He'd say that there wasn't anyone that was going to spank this child. lol All of the grandkids had the same experience. I'm just happy that he was in his right mind until the end and knew everyone and everything that was going on. I will never forget his laugh or his big sense of humor. I thank God for the 91 yrs he was here and that God gave him to me as a grandparent. Gramps and Granny are blessings I never take for granted. We will never forget and always remember him with love and gratitude. Taleah and Keith Wright

I knew Mr. Edwards as a child. My connection to him was really through my dad. Dad, Mr. Joe Allen, was band director at Muhlenberg Central while Mr. Edwards was on the board. Never did a board meeting approach that dad wasn't tugging on "Chalkey" to help persuade the board to assist the band program. I know that my dad would have loved to have been there with Carole Jean and the other family members last evening and/or today; however, with his limited mobility now as well as the bad weather he was unable to attend. I also have connection to Carole Jean through KAPOS cheerleading in the past and now as a school counselor I often see her at conferences we attend. It is always great seeing her and being able to reminisce for a few minutes about the good ole' days at MC. She was always one of my Dad's favorites. Maya and I cheered together at MC for a couple of years. I still keep in touch with her through Facebook and enjoy knowing what is going on in her life with Keith, her boys, and that new grandbaby. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
